Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Grilled Octopus with a Garlic Bean Puree

As it’s already cooked octopus is the perfect summer meal when you don’t want to be spending a lot of time in the kitchen.  For the puree combine two garlic cloves, a teaspoon of coarse salt, black pepper, a can of drained white beans, and a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil in a food processor and pulse until smooth.  To serve simply grill or sauté your octopus for five minutes, spoon the bean puree onto plates, and finish off with a squeeze of lemon juice and chopped chives or scallions for garnish.
